So, you want to be a hooker?

After counting thousands of pennies (I got paid today), I had a few precious minutes to use either being productive or surfing YouTube and I found this little documentary.

What, you don't spend your YouTube time looking for craft documentaries?

While there were many familiar faces, I can't believe I've never heard of Whitney Lee nor seen her wares. Where have I been?

Whitney Lee hooks porn rugs. Yes! Now, I have been mildly intrigued by the porn by numbers that I've seen in the past, but this is latch hook people. Who likes latch hook? Do you have any idea how many latch hook kits and partially finished rugs and commode covers that can be found at yard sales and thrift stores all over the country? Do you know why? Because the end result always seems to be some weird-looking mushroom or Eeyore. Until now.

I just wish I would have found her sooner. I don't think there's enough time to latch hook rugs for Christmas (she sells kits). This would have knocked out most of my Christmas list...husband, Dad, brother, grandma. Oh but next year, you better look out!

OH MY GOD!!! I love this! LOL!

Honestly I buy those crappy mushroom/flower kits just to do the hooking which is so fun!

I have got to buy a few of these!! Very nice find!

I just ran this idea by my wife, who loves to cross stitch, and it was promptly rejected.

Maybe it wouldn't go with our country-style house design, but I think it's cool.

Terrific post! Grandma's gift was hilarious.

Hooked rugs reminds me of the summer my cousin had mono and we would get the kits and sit around her bed and hook and shoot the breeze - probably 1981 or 1982. My cousin died way too young but had a wicked sense of humor - she would have loved this!
